-- This package contains the definitions and routines associated with the
-- implementation and use of the Task_Info pragma. It is specialized
-- appropriately for targets that make use of this pragma.
-- Note: the compiler generates direct calls to this interface, via Rtsfind.
-- Any changes to this interface may require corresponding compiler changes.
-- This unit may be used directly from an application program by providing
-- an appropriate WITH, and the interface can be expected to remain stable.
package System.Task_Info is
pragma Elaborate_Body;
-- To ensure that a body is allowed
-- Implementation of Task_Info Feature --
-- The Task_Info pragma:
-- pragma Task_Info (EXPRESSION);
-- allows the specification on a task by task basis of a value of type
-- System.Task_Info.Task_Info_Type to be passed to a task when it is
-- created. The specification of this type, and the effect on the task
-- that is created is target dependent.
-- The Task_Info pragma appears within a task definition (compare the
-- definition and implementation of pragma Priority). If no such pragma
-- appears, then the value Task_Info_Unspecified is passed. If a pragma
-- is present, then it supplies an alternative value. If the argument of
-- the pragma is a discriminant reference, then the value can be set on
-- a task by task basis by supplying the appropriate discriminant value.
-- Note that this means that the type used for Task_Info_Type must be
-- suitable for use as a discriminant (i.e. a scalar or access type).
-- Declarations --
type Scope_Type is
-- Contend only with threads in same process

type Task_Info_Type is new Scope_Type;
-- Type used for passing information to task create call, using the
-- Task_Info pragma. This type may be specialized for individual
-- implementations, but it must be a type that can be used as a
-- discriminant (i.e. a scalar or access type).
